Recently, I noticed a few hits on this particular page, and realized, oops, I don’t have anything here to let people know who I am in the blogosphere (or in real-time, either). So, read on. (Be sure to click on the “Where Have We Been” link at the bottom of the page)
As of November
2009 2014),(2016) I am a God-fearing man of 42, 47, 49, a husband to the same wonderful woman (Sharon) for 20 25 27 years, a father to eight (!) children, and a signalman (a signal maintainer since 2012) for one of the nation’s class I railroads.
I was a pastor for seven years, and a paid IT guy (computer geek) for 12 years. I’ve also worked construction, and have been published as a writer. I’ve been involved as a trainer (other than for my own children) and an educator at various points along the way over about 15 years. I have been blogging, now, for ten years.
My family and I live on a 10-acre “hobby” farm in Southwestern Minnesota. We have egg-laying hens,
a few goats, some sheep of several varieties, a few cows, and a few dogs, including two Newfoundlands, a few pigs, and several cats.
Oh, and did I mention? We (!) home school. I say, we, but actually, Sharon obviously is the primary teacher.
There you have it, for now. It’s not exactly in a nutshell, but, it’s who I am. More than I had here yesterday.
